WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUKTT, ARIZONA FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1922.
NO. 31 Volume 30 WILLIAMS DEFEATS FLAGSTAFF 8 TO 7 Save for the absence of Boss Acker, Judge Eddie Jones and Fred Breen, Williams Field last Sunday afternoon might have been taken for an open air -meeting of Flagstaff's "Who's Who". And what a game ! f From tne very nrsi wiuuk .when KniDDs waiKea on ium bad ones, until the last man was out in the ninth when, with O'Connor, Flagstaff's star, at 'the bat, with one down, two strikes on the batter, a man on second and one run needed to tie the score there was scarce ly a minute during the after noon that did not possess a thrill for one side or the other. Time and again Flagstaff could have won the game by a single hit, but when thut hit was need- ed Biggs would steady down, let out a wrap, and the neces sary hit would be denied. A pitcher is pitching ball when, " with the bases full, Charley Gray and Walter Carlson come up to the bat and are gracefully retired in order. He must be some pitcher too when in the last inning one run was needed to tie the score, with a man on second, he deliberately pitches to O'Connor, by far the heaviest hitter on the Flagstaff team. Many pitchers would have walked O'Connor who had already three hits to his credit, including a home run but Biggs took a chance with the -. slugger, and Biggs won. For O'Connor hit a liner to little Allen at second, and the game was over. And by the way, speaking of " this man Allen. "Last week's News called attention to" the fact that his work at - second should be observed. Did you . take notice of it Sunday? Com parisons are, of course, always odious, but we are going to risk this one in order to point a moral and adorn a tale. There were four University of Ari- , zona players in Sunday's game. Flagstaff presented three of them, while Williams had one r Allen. The three players on the Flagstaff team were members of last year's regular University team the first team. Allen was discouraged from even trying to make the team, -but he came to Williams high ly recommended by one of the University coaches. In every thing that goes to make a ball player hitting, running, bunt- 0 ing and fielding Allen is there. No one man was responsible for Sunday's victory, but if any one man is deserving of more credit than another that man would be Allen. A single instance of his wonderful field ing will suffice. . In the fifth Amos who had just previous ly made a splendid catch of a high fly back of third hit a pop-up fly near the foul line between first and right. It had all the appearance of being a clean single, and no one in the vast assemblage had the slightest idea that any player would attempt to catch it. g Little Allen was seen to set full . sail for the ball, and to the wonderment of all nabbed it on the fly not four feet from the foul line. It was by a odds t the best catch ever made on Williams Field. The game began with Shill on the mound for Williams and Cochran for Flagstaff. Dunn and Browning did the catch ing. Flagstaff scored a run in the first and another in the second. Williams was, blank ed in the first, owing, to ulli- X vant being sent home from sec ond on a hit by, bellman, when he should . have been held at third. ' However in the second Williams opened up on Mr. 7 Cochran in earnest, and when the smoke cleared away, four runs were chalked up to their credit. During the swatfest ;Cochran was replaced by a gentleman from Doney Park by the name of Hoght Hogue Hogg, br NOTICE TO NATIONAL FOREST PERMITTEES.

Phone 14, Mrs. Charles Sweet wood. some other name Walter Carl son in announcing his debut stated to the scorers that "any thing would do". Anyhow the gentleman pitched a very cred itable game. He has good curves, good speed and fair control. . He stopped Williams scoring for the time being, and it was not until later in . the game that they got to him suf ficiently to win. In the third inning Shill was replaced . by Biggs after Flagstaff had tied the score, and from that time on it was anybody's game.- At the beginning of the eighth the score stood five to six in favor of Flagstaff. The visitors were blanked in their half of the in ning, but Williams came along with three scores in their half, and then the ninth opened. Doc Mackey, the first man up, flew out to Rouby Sullivant in center; Hogt the pitcher ' took the Old Trails Route Al len to Humphrey. It looked to be all over but the shouting but wait! "His" Knibbs hits for a three bagger and is scored by Amos, who safely .perched on second. The score now was seven to eight, a man on second two down, and O'Connor at the bat. It was a tense moment, for Flag's star is just as likelv to put the ball out of the lot as not. One ball, one strike, an other ball then a mighty swing! "Two strikes", called the um pire. Biggs was pitching to him he would not be passed! Suddenly a resounding whack was heard and straight on a line toward second SDed -the ball. Allen was there in time. nailed it and the game was over. Notes. Quietly seated up in the j stand where he could observe i the batters, was "Lefty" Miller, Flagstaff's star pitcher of last year, and the man whom they will probably pitch next Sun day. It was the best umpired game I ever played between Flagstaff I and Williams. Mr. Haynes, of I Ash Fork, officiated behind the I bat, and Mr. Hastier, of Flag- i staff, on the bases. Both did splendid work. The News would like to point out the individual players who deserve especial mention, but to do so would compel a roll call of both teams and space forbids. Dunn started to catch for Williams, but early in the third a twister caught him on the tip of a finger tearing , the flesh from the nail, and he had to give way to Proctor, who was subbing for Dick Cole in left. Fortunately Dunn's injury did not incapacitate him from bat ting, and he kept up his splen did stick work during the'game. Browning and Proctor- both caught good games." Proctor caught Browning off first by a quick throw in the third, and came very near doing it again. Humphrey at first gave the .best exhibition of playing that important position has seen here in many a day. Cooke, Allen, and Humphrey had most of the game to themselves. Harry Selmon, over on third, had little to do. ' '''('Continued on page 4) COUNCIL PLANS STEAM HEAT FOR WILLIAMS At the special meeting of the Town Council held last week, the matter of using the exhaust steam from the light plant engines for heating pur poses was taken up. Flagstaff like many other towns ha3 made use of this steam for heat ing purposes for a number of years. It has been found to be a very satisfactory and eco nomical method of heating. In this way the heat in the steam which passes from the engine exhaust is made to heat the business places or dwellings of a town. There is no ex pense of producing this steam because of the fact that it has to be produced to run the en gines. In this way what was Detore a waste product can be made the source of a very good revenue to the town. It is esti mated that the steam now wasting will be sufficient to heat the school house and most of the business buildings of Wil liams, if the plan works. Another matter of impor tance brought before the coun cil was the installation of a steam laundry near the light plant. This too, would use the steam from the engine ex haust. More complete plans for. this will be announced later. The matter of ordering wat er meters, which was carried over from the former meeting was again taken up. The clerk was instructed to place an order for the necessary meters. Every water custo mer in town will be supplied with a meter and henceforth each will pay for the amount of water used. In the past those who have been so con siderate of the public welfare as to carefully save water have been forced to pay as much for water service " as those . " who have wasted it. The installa tion of the meters wilL. start next week and will be complet-, ed in about two months. The various council com mittees were eiven their in structions at this meeting.

ANA FROHMILLER FOR COUNTY TREASURER Mrs. Ana Frohmiller, the pleasant and accommodating young woman who has been I serving as county treasurer since the resignation of Henry i Aphold, is out for the demo cratic nomination for that of 1 fice. All those who have had j business in the treasurer's of fice since the appointment of Mrs. r rohmiller are pleased to know that she has decided to enter the campaign. As yet no one has had the courage to enter the primary race against her and it seems quite probable that she will have no opponent in September. Mrs. Frohmiller, is amply aualified to fill the office of County Treasurer as has been demonstrated by the excellent record she has already made in that office. She is courteous in her treatment of everyone and accurate in her accounting and comes as near to making the yearly or semi-annual visit of taxpayers to that office, a pleasure, despite the heavy tax rate, as is humanly possible. There is no doubt that Mrs. j Frohmiller will pull a very big vote at the Primaries, Sept. 12. Car For Forest Service. The Williams office of the Forest Service has been alloted a Ford -runabout with truck body. , Asst. Supervisor Geo. Kimball left on Thursday night for Holbrook and will drive the machine down from there. He expects to arrive in Williams tonight (Friday). This is just the car that the . local office has been longing for as it will enable them to get over the country quickly and carry quite a load at the same time. It will be ' prticularly valuable in helping the men to get to fires quickly. FROM REMOVING BEARDS TO REMOVING CRIMINALS That is the change which R. D. Mitchell proposes to make provided the democrats see it that way at the primaries Sep tember 12, and the- voters as a whole express the same senti ment at the polls in November. "Mitch" has presided over the work of restoring the touch of youth to aging faces, at the Cabinet Barber Shop for the past six years, and has been similarly engaged for the great er part of his fifty years. His skillful work has won fame and popularity. He believes that if elected to the office of Justice of the Peace, he can do equally well at helping weed out the law breakers of the community. This is the first time that Mr. Mitchell has sought a public of fice. He is amply qualified to fill the office of Justice of the Peace, and if nominated and ! elected will give his best efforts to the faithful performance of his duties. He is a man of family, having four daughters, three of them in the Williams schools and one now graduat ing from the Flagstaff Normal. Since the death of his wife a number of years ago, the bur den of caring for his daughters and looking after their welfare has envolved upon his should ers, and in the difficult role of father-mother, he has done un usually well. . The same abil ity displayed in the office f Justice of the Peace would I make him an unqualified suc cess there. His heart is as big as his stature. He is broad minded and a firm believer in strict observance of. the Law. The voters can make no mis take in nominating and elect ing such a man to a public of fice. " ' : . Commroicinj?

The following is taken from a letter written by Williard Sevier, formerly of- Williams, to the News. "Pine Knot is the post office for the Big Bear Valley, one of California's most popular sum mer resorts. There are thous ands of people here during the summer. , Big Bear Lake is 7 mile slong by about a mile wide at an elevation of 7000 feet or about the same as Cole man Lake. People come hun dreds of miles to enjoy a. cli mate almost exactly like that about Coleman Lake and there is no reason why they would not do likewise with Coleman Lake if the roads were repaired and the resort advertised.

SHOWERS AND FIRES BUT LITTLE DAMAGE The thunder showers of the past week set ten forest fires but thanks to the rain ard the prompt action of the forest Service, none of the fives at tained any considerable , pro portions. So far this reason the damage done by forest fires in Tusayan forest has been very light and the chances seem good for the remainder of the season as the summer rains have already made a beginning and will probably keep down , fires for the balance of the sum mer. . k During the past six- months this forest has had 12 man caused fires. - About three fourths of these were due to. carelessness. Fortunately none of the fires succeeded in making much headway before the rang ers got them under control. The total area burned over in the Tusayan forest so far this season is 35 acres. Of that amount, 31 acres were on the prairie in Garland Prairie where only grass was burned , POLICE COURT J. A. McDowell Charge, drunk. Fined 30 days sus pended sentence.
